When you have a small or petite face, it is crucial you find glasses that don’t cover your face, rather emphasize your best features, and reflect your style and personality. At Alexander Daas, we understand the problem you face when searching for a pair of stylish glasses that flatter your petite face.
The lack of glasses options for those with small faces means most people resort to buying frames that look too big for your face. Although many petite-faced people resort to children’s frames, wearing them can often result in pain.
In finding the correct size of glasses for small faces, you have to learn the size of your current frame. Simply read the numbers printed on the temples of your glasses and look for frames in the same size. You’ll know a frame fits you well when your eyes center in the frame, and the width of your face and the frame have a similar size, with the bridge sitting on your nose comfortably. You can use this general calculation for your frame size:
Frame Size = Eye size + Bridge size
- Very narrow: less than 65mm
- Narrow: 66mm – 67mm
- Medium: 68mm-70mm
- Wide: 70mm-73mm
- Very Wide: more than 74mm
Our glasses were made to fit stylish men and women with narrow faces perfectly. From metal to acetate, you’ll find frames that will best suit not only your face but personality. You’ll also find top designer brands like Celine, Garrett Leight, Mykita, and Dior. We’ve gathered some of our best selling glasses for small faces below.

Oversized Glasses for Petite Faces
The time has come to debunk the stereotype. Oversized means “too big” with no particular measurement and size, it’s merely about what looks oversized in proportion to your face. This means oversized glasses for your small face might not be oversized for someone else.
The best way to find the right oversized glasses for small faces is to ensure a proper nose fit and right proportion to your face.
